I spent the holidays with my mom, boyfriend and his family in lovely Sarasota, Florida. We had a cookout on the beach and it was still a beautiful day in the Florida winter and it was a great beach for finding shells. I have a glass covered coffee table filled with shells I and my family have collected over the years, it is truly unique and beautiful, and serves as a keepsake of all the family trips to the beach, and this year I added some new shells with my boyfriend. My boyfriend and I did an impromptu photo shoot and I did some ballet moves. The dress I am wearing is by designer Adrianna Papell, they make beautiful evening and formal wear that is often beaded or embroidered.
